FA chairman Dyke, speaking to the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme, said that the organisation had come under significant pressure to vote for Infantino at a recent Uefa meeting, but added that no decision has been taken.
“We’re going to discuss this at the FA board this week and the board will decide,” he said.
“I went to the meeting at Uefa and we refused. We said: ‘We are not telling you.’ We came under a lot of pressure. There was a lot of pressure. There were half-a-dozen European nations who said: ‘We’re not deciding today.'”
‘Infantino believes he is the frontrunner’
Richard Conway, the BBC’s sports news correspondent, says that Infantino is confident of victory.
Conway said: “I understand Infantino believes he has secured over the half of the votes from the potentially crucial Concacaf region – 35 votes in total, drawn from North America, Central America and the Caribbean.
“Infantino’s camp are growing in confidence and believe he has real momentum entering last two weeks of the Fifa campaign.
“It is understood that he has secured support from every Fifa region to the extent he now believes he is the frontrunner.”
Joleon Lescott apologised for tweeting a picture of an expensive car after Aston Villa were thrashed by Liverpool.
The Villa defender claimed it was “accidental” and sent from his phone in his pocket while he was driving.
The 33-year-old’s tweet attracted ridicule following Sunday’s humiliating 6-0 home defeat which leaves Villa eight points from safety at the bottom of the Premier League.
Lescott also apologised for “the team’s lack of commitment”.
“I’m not one for tweeting after games whether it’s a good, bad or indifferent result,” added Lescott. “But I would like to apologise for the performance today, personally and collectively”, tweeted Lescott.
